As I told you in an old February post, the Four Continents Fountain in Piazza Unità has, in the past, been a victim of acts of vandalism. The four statues depicting the four continents (Australia is missing because it had not yet been discovered when the fountain was built) had had their hands chopped off and one had even been decapitated.
They have since been restored, based on old photographs preserved in the Civic Museum of History and Science.
And so finally the missing pieces are in place. Here we begin with the head of Africa. Over the next few days, I'll be posting the new hands.
